I went to the subantarctic islands of New Zealand a few years ago. I also went to Macquarie Island, which is an Australian Island Рhalfway to Antarctica from the bottom of New Zealand Рand there it rains something like 320 days in the year. The scientists that do their lonely tours of duty at Macquarie make some pretty sweet home  brew too :D

In fact that’s where I was this time 4 years ago. I had Xmas day at the Chatham Islands, and it was a pretty crazy experience. Excellent kai, as we had blue cod straight from Waitangi Harbour, and the crays were epic.

Perhaps more on that, some other time.

Anyhow, I’ve been going through and scanning some of these old slides that I shot there, these are mostly from Macquarie. They’re really the first go I’d had at photography, and what made me think I should get my own DSLR. Lemme know what you reckon. My favourites from this lot are the yellow-eyed penguin peeking through the branches, and the king penguins in the first shot, and the one from the Bounties.

If you click on the photo of the penguins below, it’ll open up a slideshow from my Flickr set.
